It seems as if Bayern Munich and Canada left-back Alphonso Davies is living an ideal life at the age of only 22, but the reality is completely different.
If the full-back jet won the Bavarian team the European Champions League in football and the Club World Cup, and has 5.2 million followers on Instagram and will be the star of advertising campaigns for the 2026 World Cup hosted by his country alongside the United States and Mexico, he admitted that he suffers from loneliness in Germany, noting that he has only five friends.
Outside his duties as a soccer player, he finds it difficult to adapt to daily life away from his family and girlfriend, about 6,200 km from the Canadian city of Edmonton.
“The life of a professional footballer is, without a doubt, wonderful,” Davies said on Twitch. You can enjoy life, but after the workouts, there is nothing to do.
He added: As for me, my family is not on my side, and the matter applies to my girlfriend as well, and therefore I live alone.
He revealed: It’s a bit unsettling when you don’t have anything to do, especially when all your friends are at work. I probably have five friends, I’m a loser model in that sense.
Davies rose to prominence with the Vancouver Whitecaps in the North American League before moving to Bayern Munich in 2018.
A year after the deal, Davies imposed himself in the ranks of the Bavarian team and became one of the best left-backs in the world thanks to his explosive speed, dribbling and elaborate crosses.
He scored Canada’s first goal in the history of its participation in the World Cup in the World Cup in Qatar, with a header against Croatia, after he missed a penalty kick in the first match against Belgium.
